# Descriptive Statistics and Probability Distributions

Curriculum Module in collaboration with Ward Nickle, Humboldt State University
Created with R2020a. Compatible with R2020a and later releases.

## Description

This package contains live scripts centered around the fundamentals of descriptive statistics and some commonly used probability distributions. These materials are designed to be flexible and can be easily modified to accommodate a variety of teaching and learning methods. Used in a sequence, the live scripts progressively add depth to the topic. However, each script can be easily adapted for standalone use. It includes a brief background, interactive illustrations, tasks, reflection questions, and example problems for the different concepts explored. ## Suggested Prework

MATLAB Onramp – a free two-hour introductory tutorial to learn the essentials of MATLAB®.
